surviving

Yes, victors are our strongest. They’re the ones who survived the arena and slipped the noose of poverty that strangles the rest of us. They, or should I say we, are the very embodiment of hope where there is no hope. And now twenty-three of us will be killed to show how even that hope was an illusion.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

You’ve got to go through it to get to the end of it.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

It ain’t the blows we’re dealt that matter, but the ones we survive.

Stephen King, Rose Madder

You could hear the wind in the leaves, and on that wind traveled the screams of the kids on the playground in the distance, little kids figuring out how to be alive, how to navigate a world that wasn’t made for them by navigating a playground that was.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Keeping the truth from the people closest to you is how you’ll survive, and how you’ll protect them if anything goes wrong.

Harry Morgan, Dexter
